  • I'll try to show you my school, the Istituto Superiore Majorana di Palermo. As you probably know, Majorana was a very important physicist of the past century. He worked in the time between the two world wars, studing and investigating the matter structure. He was a collegue of Enrico Fermi. His dead is still mysterious,as he embarked on the ship from Naples to Palermo, and never came out!
  • Here we are. As you can see our school is situated at the north side of Palermo. That's one of the reason why we have a lot of pupils from the countries you can see on the left side of the map: from Isola delle Femmine, Carini, Capaci.
  • Our school as recorded by Google “street view”. In this slide you can find the address, e-mails, phone numbers, web site Url.
  • Our courses concern: computer studies, chemistry, agricultural education.
  • Indeed the school is the result of the fusion of the following three schools: Iti (chemical and computer science) Istituto tecnico agrario (technics for agriculture) Istituto Professionale Agricoltura e Ambiente (vocational studies in the field of agriculture and environment)
  • Our functional spaces
  • Computer science labs Each lab is capable of 12 to 15 networked personal computer with shared internet connection. Usually on each computer are working two pupils at the same time.
  • Computer science labs are used fro ECDL courses too.
  • Chemical labs Here you can see the necessary stuff for technical analisys: computers, spectrophotometers, special owens and so on.
  • I dad not the time to traslate this list, as it's very long. It describes entities, istitutions, factories where our students could find a job. We are proud of such a list because we know our students have many possibilities after their grade.
  • Majorana location view but from Google Earth, this time, just to show you we'll go to the beach during the next meeting in Palermo. Or to go hiking, if you prefer the mountain!
